Misfire 1.8 ts

I just got my 156 on the road and I really am enjoying it, only problem is at 2000rpm it kind of misfires then clears! It ain't a massive problem just annoying, any ideas?

oil in the plug wells of cylinder one, which is surrounding the plugs & causing them to misfire

I have a similar problem - Really struggles below 2500-3000rpm - especially from cold - can be bit dodgy when pulling away and suddenly you have no power. It does bring up the MCSF fault and i to have been advised it could be a coil pack problem. I had a similar issue a few years back and after replacing all the spark plugs it cleared it - there was oil in the two wells on the cambelt side which i soaked up (think that was leaking in through rocker gasket which i have also replaced). But now its back and i plan to have a good clean of the spark plug wells and the coil packs this weekend to see if that helps. I was also advised to hook it up to alfa diag or fiat scan to read the fault code but i havent got the equipment.
